The large and impressive Corinthian capital of each candlestick retains the original hallmarked detachable push fit sconce ornamented with a plain moulded rim.

The cylindrical columns are supported by a cuboid plinth to an impressive plain square stepped three tier base.

Each plinth is embellished with a fine and impressive bright cut engraved coat of arms depicting the Head family coat of arms encircled with a belt accented with the family motto 'Study Quiet'.

The bases retain the original contemporary engraved inscription 'A token of respect from Francis Head to her aunt Dame Mary Ann Head. 1803'* to the lowest tier.

Both candlesticks are fitted with turned mahogany bases to the underside.

These magnificent candlesticks were crafted by George Eadon, George Kibbles & John Weaver of George Eadon & Co.

* The title 'Dame' was the traditional style for the wife of a baronet at this time and before although it was interchangeable with the title 'Lady'.


These antique candlesticks are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in presentation condition.

These candlesticks are in the original and exceptional condition in keeping with age.

There are minor blemishes to each candlestick as to be expected in keeping with age; this does not detract from the aesthetic appearance of this fine pair of candlesticks.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these fine examples of Georgian silverware.
